Normalization of upper limb movement remains a difficult problem for a significant subpopulation of hemiplegic stroke patients. Clinical observations prompted investigation of a novel approach using simultaneous identical bilateral movements performed independently. We briefly report 12 controlled single-case experiments using multiple-baseline designs(More)
OBJECTIVE Recovery of movement in the densely hemiplegic upper extremity remains a problem after stroke. This study aimed to determine whether movement recovery could be improved in the hemiplegic arm with bilateral isokinematic training. METHODS Within and between groups, planned comparisons investigated the effects of bilateral training on attempts at(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine (1) the most effective of three treatment approaches to retrain seated weight distribution long-term after stroke and (2) whether improvements could be generalized to weight distribution in standing. SETTING Inpatient rehabilitation unit. DESIGN Forty asymmetrical acute stroke subjects were randomly allocated to one of four groups(More)
OBJECTIVE To obtain the best estimate of the size of the effect of a thermoplastic resting splint on spasticity in the stroke-affected upper limb. DESIGN A randomized controlled intervention involving 14 adults affected by stroke,allocated to two groups. SETTING Inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation departments. INTERVENTION Following one week of(More)
